TransMetro Center Photoshoot

A few weeks ago, I was asked to take some photos of the TransMetro Center for an upcoming RFP. I got lucky that it was a nice, bright late morning/early afternoon. I wouldn't say that these photo are great or works of art or design, but photography has come to take a larger role in what I do at DMC. Curious, two of the three firms I have worked at since college has utilized me as a photographer in some capacity or another. although my training has really been that of a designer, despite all my years prior in the darkroom of commercial printers before college as a semi-professional.

Bunjie Hucksters & Holiday Shopping

From The Design Tracts

Sometimes the best design comes on the fly. The Bunjie Huckster packaging was once such program that I put together in a matter of hours, die-lines and all.I don't know what it is, but I can never complete my holiday shopping without waiting to the last moment. I am too picky. No gift is good enough and the prices always seem to high.
Just like with design and certainly with some projects over others.

Tight deadlines are at most times, this designer's best friend. I don't have time to shop, I must pick a direction, develop it and get it off my desk and to the client.

Gordie Boucher // Go Green // Personalized URL

Not all of my projects are sexy. Designing PURLS are one of them as you have to design them very simply. Because of the software we use, I am limited to tabling everything. Using CSS for styling and positioning will not work, so I manage the best I can with circa 1990's webdesign with straight html and tables and gifs for interactivity. FYI, I did not choose the software we use to deploy these sites and I was not consulted.

This was released a week or two ago. You can check it out here.
